• Cody Rhodes Comments On The Most Misused Term In Wrestling
During an interview on Broken Skull Sessions, Cody Rhodes talked to Stone Cold Steve Austin about a term that’s often misused – being ‘over’.
Cody said this term can’t be used for wrestlers who are basically ‘flavor of the month’ (wrestlers that gain short momentum boosts):
“I’m sure you, far more than anyone, has seen the misuse of wrestling terms.
I have never heard a more misused term than the term ‘over,’ and that was throughout my whole run as management or as an EVP (in AEW). I kept thinking, ‘I don’t wanna say that,’ because over means something different.
Over is what you and Rock are doing selling out Anaheim, selling every shirt in the building, and then moving 40 miles down the road to Ontario or L.A. and selling it out again.”
